Without even going to the merits of the case, this illustrates the sort of misquote Jed constantly perpetrates. I have no idea why. Shanahan said it could have evaporated in something like 10 days. If you want to discuss this, then do. But nobody said overnight and your insisting on it won't make it true. As I said, typical Jed Rothwell misquote. Finally, to the merits of the case, the bucket was not under observation so nobody knows what ACTUALLY happened to it during the time period. And this is all ridiculously irrelevant because to prove the point, the experiment could have and SHOULD have been repeated.
